EPA Causes Another Spill
Posted by <> on 10/9/2015 9:19:00 AM.
The EPA has caused another mine spill, and they’re dismissing it as minor, but its lack of notification and acknowledgment is raising questions. The EPA said yesterday in a prepared statement that the Standard Mine spill near Crested Butte caused wastewater to flow into a creek on Tuesday. The creek runs into the town's water supply, but the agency said there was no sign of significant impact. The EPA said it immediately notified local public works officials, though the mayor of Crested Butte says he didn't find out until yesterday.

Statement from Sheriff Dunlap
Posted by <> on 10/9/2015 9:13:00 AM.
“Given the inaccuracy of the statements made by Councilman Bob Nicholson and City Manager Bill Bell in the October 7th edition of the Montrose Daily Press regarding the City of Montrose’s perceived need to create a second 911 dispatch center, I feel compelled to respond. I have never stated in writing or otherwise that the Sheriff’s Office would not provide dispatch services to the City of Montrose or other users. The assertion that I informed the city in writing that services would not be provided after January 1, 2016 is false.

Posted by <> on 10/7/2015 9:30:00 AM.
Flu season is approaching, and Colorado health officials are recommending flu shots. The CDC acknowledged earlier this year that their 2014 vaccine was not as effective as was hoped. But doctors in Colorado say that's no excuse not to get vaccinated, since the shot can boost the chances of not getting the flu.
